We’ve been in Durango for just over a week now, and we are loving it. Sasha said to me yesterday, “You realize the most important and stressful decision we make all day is what we’re going to eat for dinner.” I laughed – but it’s true. We go on about four to five walks a day, as my parents live within 5 minutes of the grocery store, Main Street where all of the restaurants and shops are, Animas River, and mountain trails. My Nike Fuel Band is back in action! I wrote a Durango Travel Guide post last year, but I definitely have to update it after trying many new restaurants, juice bars and ice cream shops. I’ve put together an assortment of photos from our first week – as you can tell, I’ve been very trigger happy as of late.

What are your summer plans?

PS Happy birthday, Mum and Karine!


Isla flew from Houston to Denver to Durango and slept through every second of it (thank you, Lord!)


Walking to Durango Joe’s for morning coffee with the whole Petrovic family


Hiking and biking (while the grandparents were here to babysit!)


I finally found a bow that is semi-appropriately sized for a newborn – and a tutu dress from my sweet co-workers!


Celebrating our one year anniversary — with dinner and on a raft!


My favorite bow romper from Paola (I love Janie and Jack!) and our romantic rooftop anniversary dinner


Staring at that face all day and praying she always wants to hold my hand


Geared up for a day on the water (another Paola gift!) and a wet pup from lots of Animas River swimming


Isla’s new nap place – the BabyBjorn – and a tired tanner in her Baby Gap swimsuit from Erin


Navajo State Park adventures with the whole family (Isla slept through the entire experience)


A sneak peak of Isla’s newborn photos from Taylor Lord and I’ve finally sent all of the birth announcements!


Father-daughter bonding moments that make me heart melt


Hamming it up – and wearing her UT apparel! Girl’s gonna be a Longhorn fan, for sure
